  1. Astronaut Ed White floats in the microgravity of space fifty years ago during the first U.S. spacewalk outside the Gemini IV spacecraft June 3, 1965. He is secured to the spacecraft by a 25-foot umbilical line and tether wrapped in gold tape. REUTERS/NASA/Jim McDivitt/Handout

  2. The first American spacewalk, conducted in 1965 by Gemini 4 astronaut Ed White, is seen during a screening of archival footage on Capitol Hill in Washington May 6, 2008. REUTERS/Larry Downing

  3. Astronaut Ed White floats in the microgravity of space fifty years ago during the first U.S. spacewalk outside the Gemini IV spacecraft June 3, 1965. In his left hand is a Hand-Held Self-Maneuvering Unit with which he controls his movements in space. REUTERS/NASA/Jim McDivitt/Handout

  4. Astronaut Sory Musgrave, anchored on the Remote Manipulator System arm, prepares to install protective covers on the magnetometers of the Hubble Space Telescope December 9, 1993. Astronaut Jeffrey Hoffman (bottom of frame) assists. REUTERS/NASA/Handout

  5. Space shuttle Discovery astronaut Mark Lee teams with Steven Smith (out of frame but reflected in Lee's helmet visor) during their spacewalking service mission on the Hubble Space Telescope February 16, 1997. REUTERS/NASA/Handout

  6. Astronauts Richard J. Hieb, Thomas D. Akers and Pierre J. Thuot (L-R) attach a specially designed grapple bar underneath the 4.5 ton Intelsat VI satellite at the space shuttle Endeavour's cargo bay May 13, 1992. REUTERS/NASA/Handout

  7. Astronaut Mark Lee floats free in space around the earth while testing a new jetpack rescue device (SAFER) September 16, 1994. Lee and his colleague Col. Carl Meade from the Space Shuttle Discovery tested the device in the first untethered spacewalk by NASA astronauts in ten years. REUTERS/NASA/Handout

  8. Mir space station commander Anatoly Solovyov cuts through the insulation cover of the Spektr module with a special hammer-like instrument during six hours of work September 6, 1997. Solovyov and NASA researcher Michael Foale went on a risky spacewalk trying to repair damage caused by a cargo tug that collided with the Mir station. REUTERS/Handout

  9. Astronaut Nicole Stott, STS-128 mission specialist, waves as she pauses during a spacewalk, with the International Space Station's solar panels as a backdrop, as construction and maintenance continue on the International Space Station September 1, 2009. REUTERS/NASA/Handout

  10. The Space Shuttle Discovery, docked to the Destiny laboratory of International Space Station, is seen during a spacewalk August 3, 2005. Astronaut Soichi Noguchi, a mission specialist representing Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA), is partially visible between Discovery's payload bay and Destiny. The blackness of space and Earth's horizon formed the backdrop for the image. REUTERS/NASA/Handout

  26. Astronaut Dale Gardner holds up a "For Sale" sign referring to the two satellites, Palapa B-2 and Westar 6 that they retrieved from orbit after their Payload Assist Modules (PAM) failed to fire, aboard Space Shuttle Discovery November 14, 1984. Astronaut Joseph P. Allen IV, who also participated in the two EVAs, is reflected in Gardner's helmet visor. A portion of each of two recovered satellites is in the lower right corner
